Verbal Aikido: Green Belt arrived on book shelves in March 2013 and was the first in a series of books on practical conflict transformation. Volume 2 (Orange Belt) was released in November 2015. Volume 3 (White Belt) and The Verbal Stretching Handbook will be appearing as soon as I get my notes together!
